Bruegger’s Bagels Sauces Up the Menu this Fall

Bruegger’s Bagels introduces another burst of bold flavor to its menu with the new Chimi-Cheddar Egg Sandwich, featuring chimichurri sauce, debuting on its fall menu September 11. Seasonal favorites including Pumpkin Bagels and Pumpkin Cream Cheese also return.

 

The Chimi-Cheddar Egg Sandwich uses the traditional Argentinian sauce to spice up Bruegger’s Bagels’ classic egg, bacon, and cheddar sandwich, served on a plain bagel. The new limited-time sandwich follows in the footsteps of the popular Sriracha Egg Sandwich, which was introduced last spring and has been added to Bruegger’s Bagels’ permanent menu this fall due to its overwhelming popularity.

 

“The success of the Sriracha Egg Sandwich proved that our customers really like a little kick added to their traditional breakfast,” says Bruegger’s Bagels executive chef Philip Smith. “Chimichurri is used traditionally with meats like pork or beef, but the flavor blends beautifully with bacon and cheese, making an unexpected but delicious breakfast combination.”

 

Bruegger’s Bagels’ fall favorites also make their return to the menu this week, including a Pumpkin Bagel and Cranberry Apple Bagel, baked fresh all day in each location, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese and Pumpkin Spice Coffee.

 

“While our guests embrace new, on-trend flavors, they also expect their favorites to return each year,” Smith says. “Last year guests loved having both the Cranberry Apple Bagel and Pumpkin Bagel, so we delivered, just in time for fall.”

 

Fans can order their pumpkin favorites until November 27. The Cranberry Apple Bagel and other featured menu items will be available until January 2014.
